It was a long 90-days, but the official waiting period is over and Putnam General is now in new hands. After months of uncertainty Putnam General is now officially CAMC Teays Valley.

The hospital and it's employees have been through a lot -- there was a time many thought they'd be losing their jobs, but Monday many said they said they feel like they can finally relax.

Monday afternoon was the official grand opening of CAMC Teay Valley.
Back in August Putnam General's owners HCA announced it would be closing, but the community and its leaders rallied together and fought to keep the hospital open.

Monday, those community leaders say they feel confident the hospital will continue to grow in the future.
